He happens to also be a distinguished member of the SOCIETY OF BALI WEDDING PROFESSIONALS.
And a Bali wedding photographer who has taken the wedding world in Bali by storm.
Life’s most precious moments
Hardly surprising when you look at his fantastic portfolio. Adrian is a truly talented and gifted Bali wedding photographer. His work is all about: Life’s most precious moments.
And indeed he excels in capturing the most defining moments of a couple’s Bali wedding in pictures that will leave you speechless.
But see for yourself:
A Bali wedding photographer who is surprisingly affordable
When I first saw Adrian Agung’s wedding portfolio I thought his services will come with a rather high price tag.
But to my surprise, his services are pretty affordable.
How long this will remain I can’t say because usually once a Bali wedding photographer achieves success prices tend to go up. Who can blame them…
While his Bali wedding photography packages are not 'dirt cheap' his services are still in reach of those couples who do not want to spend an arm and a leg for their Bali wedding photographer. Yet have great photographs to proudly show to friends and family.
Wedding Photojournalism in film-look / VSCO style
Adrian's photographs have a slight vintage touch. Also known as VSCO style.
A style that is nowadays very much in vogue and hugely popular with couples throughout the world.
Whatever that style may be called I think the most distinguished feature of Adrian’s work is his meticulous attention to detail. Photographing the right moment and from the right angle.
It's hard to describe so let’s better see some more work of Adrian:
Get two photographers for the price of one !
Adrian always comes with a 2nd photographer to all weddings he photographs.
He explained to me: for him, it is crucial not to miss any important moments. But sometimes those moments can happen at two places at the same time.
Example: the ladies getting ready and the gents getting ready at another location.
Or sometimes to get the very best shots of a moment it is best to capture those fleeting moments from two angles at the same time.
And obviously, a photographer cannot be in two places at the same time.
Adrian therefore not only works with just any apprentice 2nd photographer but a guy who works in exactly the same style and with the same vision as Adrian himself.
I guess that must be one of the reasons why Adrian’s portfolios are so full with special ‘moments’ that leave you in awe:
Photography from the sidelines – candid and natural
Adrian went on to explain to me that for him it is very important to work from the sidelines and let the wedding and the couple be center-stage.
He, therefore, works very unobtrusively, which in turn results in very natural looking, un-posed photographs.
However, Adrian is also a very good communicator and will provide directions when it is necessary or can yield better photographs.
This can be very important especially during the photo session that usually is done after the ceremony and before the reception.
His humorous nature will put shy couples and couples who are not that comfortable being photographed at ease.
The finest gear and excellent client services
Adrian told me that for him it is very important to come with very fine photographic equipment and to always have backup equipment in the bag in case something fails.
Together with his second photographer they usually bring 4 cameras and an assortment of the finest lenses.
Adrian prefers to work with natural light so you will not be distracted by constant bursts of flash being ‘unleashed’ upon you and your guests.
So I asked him how he photographs after the sun has set. He explained that nowadays by using the finest photographic equipment he can make photographs that are merely lit by candles or other low light sources without an additional light source.
And indeed, his evening / reception photographs look refreshingly different. Simply better than most others.
But not to worry he may also use additional light sources should it absolutely necessary. So you wont miss out on anthing
